Here’s a close up of my DIY makeup with professional pictures.  Sorry for the goofy face, but it shows off the contouring and blush color there.

As long as you blend everything out well and don’t overdo it on the foundation and powder, you shouldn’t have anything to worry about doing DIY makeup.  And there’s plenty of tips out there on makeup for photography – like not using too much shimmer, apply a little extra extra color for everything so you don’t get washed out and wear false lashes!  

 

Good luck, I’m sure you’ll do great!

@marinewife4:  thanks! I didnt do my makeup for my wedding because I wanted to just relax and have people do everything for me for once. I’m glad I had a MUA! I NEVER get my makeup done bc Im known among all my family and friends to do makeup so that’s usually my job!

@marinewife4:  MUA here who specializes in makeup for high-def television and digital photography. Make sure all makeup that you use is ok for photography. A lot of makeup can have ingredients which cause a “flashback” effect, and can make pics look bad. I recommend zero shimmer, the only exception would be a tiny amount on your eyelid. Definitely not the crease, definitely not under the brow bone. Don’t wear sunscreen if you can keep from it. It can interfere with pictures, too. 🙂

@marinewife4:  Yes, shimmer photographs horribly. It can look like oil. Most def do not use a bronzer with shimmer! A light color to highlight is perfect. Not white unless you’re super fair, but a bone color or vanilla.

Heres the same eye, one wearing shimmer and one not. See what I mean? Shimmer reflects light. Looks cool in person, but horrible in photos.

@marinewife4:  Naked Basics is my absolute fave. I’m not familiar with the other one, but 120 colors sounds fun!! Yeah, naked 2 has a lot, lot of shimmers.
